Whisker McBeardyface’s everydaycarry.com pocket dump features a Smith & Wesson .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol. Mr. McB’s chosen firearms manufacturer is the same one that invented the fo-tay, in response to the FBI’s ham-fisted attempt to catch a couple of Miami bank robbers. If you already knew that, here’s a better piece of .40 caliber trivia (it’s got fewer words than smaller trivia but better stopping power) . . .
Gaston Glock saw Smith’s brand new cartridge at a gun show, literally stole a few rounds, had his engineers build a .40 caliber GLOCK around the round (I get around) and released his fo-tay before Smith. Speed, surprise and violence of action! wins again.
You know I’m going to ask: have you, do you, would you carry a .40? A caliber with far less ammo capacity than a 9mm (never mind a .9mm), doesn’t make as big a hole as a .45 and generates more recoil than both.
